Tour of Kitchens

The 5th Annual Tour of Kitchens will be held on April 29, 2017.  The Tour of Kitchens will feature several recently renovated sophisticated and meticulously planned kitchens on a self-guided tour in DeKalb County.  Tour of Kitchens showcases DeKalb County's best residential kitchens with eye-catching yet functional designs.  Looking for inspiration in your cooking too?  Chef demonstrations from fabulous local chefs are included in the program.

Poinsettia Sale

The Poinsettia Committee thanks JLD members and the community for another successful Poinsettia Sale!  The Poinsettia Sale resulted in hundreds of orders of red and white plants.  Volunteers did a tremendous job over the Thanksgiving weekend to set up the Mary Gay House for pick-up and delivery.  As a result of community generosity, JLD donated poinsettias to other non-profit organizations including International Women's House, Day League, Our House, Samuel L. Jones Boys & Girls Club, DeKalb County Public Schools and more.
